What Is Functional Medicine? PrimeLife Ingetrative Medicine

Functional Medicine

Caring for your health properly is so much more than just taking care of individual areas of your body. At PrimeLife, we follow a “functional medicine” approach that treats the unified system of your body, holistically.

Caring for your health properly is so much more than just the basics of eating right and exercise. With current medical research, we have discovered that the body is a complex collection of organs and systems and even bacterial colonies (the microbiome) that greatly impact each other.

While the standard of care hasn’t quite “caught up” yet with most of the current science, conventional doctors and “specialists” are still treating parts of the body separately without taking into account the fact that all these areas greatly impact each other.

When you are healthy, they work together like a symphony in perfect harmony – and you have vibrant health.

But when one of these systems is off balance, the whole symphony is out of tune! When you need a “tune-up” so to speak, not only do you need to look at areas that aren’t working right… but also that the rest of your body is in balance.

We use a two-prong, function medicine approach to understand the root cause or causes of what you are experiencing. First, we do advance testing to reveal any imbalances or deficiencies your doctor most likely missed. Secondly we examine any lifestyle style that may have played a role in creating the imbalance. Our thorough intake process can also reveal potential cause for chronic symptoms that seem “mysterious” to other practitioners.

At PrimeLife, our goal is to restore balance to the body, in many areas, so that you can restore your overall health. 

We use a variety of therapies including nutrition, IV therapy, nutrition,  bio-identical hormone replacement when necessary, and advanced detox practices. 

This in-depth approach is the only successful way of treating chronic disorders because most chronic illness have many causes.

Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the underlying root causes which are usually related to lifestyle and environmental factors. We examine all areas, including diet, gut health, hormone balance, environment, emotional health, and mindset.
